Bauchi Emirate Council Sacks Kingmaker Muhammadu Kirfi


January 04, (THEWILL) – The Bauchi Emirate Council (BEC) has approved the immediate removal of Alhaji Muhammadu Bello Kirfi, as member of the Council, over what it described as disloyalty and disrespect to the State governor, Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed.

His removal was communicated in a letter signed by the Council secretary, Alhaji Shehu Mudi Muhammad.

Dated January 3, 2022, the letter reads: “I am directed to refer to a letter received from the Ministry of Local Government Affairs with reference No: MLG/LG/S/72/T dated 30th December, 2022.

“The content of the said letter indicated your disloyalty and disrespect to the Executive Governor of the State and the government. It, therefore, directed for your removal with immediate effect.

“In view of the above, you are hereby removed from office as Wazirin Bauchi and also as a Council Member of Bauchi Emirate.”
